How's 2010 for you? It's strange isn't it that we create such excitement as we move into each year, yet I wonder does that make for disappointment when we quickly realise that it's actually rather similar to the last! Anyway, I hope that you are using the start of 2010 to embrace change, regain positivity and have a good old cleanse and clear approach. who am I trying to kid? It's MAYHEM this end!!
Actually if I'm honest, I have actioned a few little plans, one of which involved QVC… as a result I'm hoping to see more of you with more shows and more varied time slots fingers crossed.
When I looked back through my diaries of last year and the year before, which I do often, I love seeing what I did on that day that year…is that odd? It's interesting to see what was filling my life then and if it indeed still is. Anyway, I came to the conclusion variety is the spice of life, not a rule I apply to you Dan, just in case you read this and think I'm planning running off with anyone! So a New Year is a perfect time to review and take stock.
Another house move…
Talking of taking stock, the move into a rental house the other week totally kick started a stock take with Dan holding up my coats (ok yes there are rather a few.), and stating which could and couldn't be kept! Cheeky boy… anyway, there are no rails, hooks, cupboards AT ALL in the house, not to mention wardrobes, so the normally 'out of sight out of mind' rule has abruptly ended.
The charity shop, local clothes bank, friends and relations are all fully loaded and my portable clothes rails are slightly less liable to collapse (only slightly!). Six months here and then hopefully our home (currently looking like a dolls house with its side removed) will be home once again. The children are dealing well with all the upheaval, better than Mummy I think!
The rest of the family is coping well
The girls are on site still, so to speak, and whilst not laying much they seem very content, certainly now the snow has melted, though more on it's way I hear YUK! Twinkle is super fine and delicious, enjoying all the coming and goings here with us and Mungo is currently enjoying a week up the road with Nanny so she's in dog heaven and a more sensible place for her with all the commotion – we can't wait to have her here though and be all complete.
We took a few pictures to show and since taking these most of my internal walls have also been bashed out, aaaaargh! It is so thrilling that at last it's happening, but scary too, not to mention costly. In fact, the reality of returning to a completed house is SO not going to happen but slowly and surely we'll get there. Lets hope the end result will be worth it! And we won't have made any silly mistakes…. I shall bore you rigid I'm sure with all our goings on, hope that's ok?
Oh and I'm working on my make-up blog, just trying to look a tad better before I bare all, facially! Vanity huh?!
Loads of love to you all and write back to me so we can chat.
